Sprint 'Game Ball of the Week'

(This post sponsored by Sprint)

Baltimore Beatdown will continue to give out a Sprint 'Game Ball of the Week' on a regular basis and in the Baltimore Ravens 37-34 OT win over the surprisingly tough yet winless Buffalo Bills, the choice is relatively clear. One might want to hand it right over to All-Pro free safety Ed Reed, but after the defense allowed the Bills to put 34 points on the board against them, I cannot see a way to give any defensive player a game ball.

Instead, we are presenting this week's honor to placekicker Billy Cundiff, who hit three field goals Sunday in the victory, none more important that the 38-yarder he nailed in overtime for the win. Cundiff was perfect on all three of his attempts and has proven all season long that the Ravens made the correct choice when they decided to retain him rather than turn the kicking chores over to veteran Shayne Graham, who was brought in for Training Camp to challenge Cundiff.

In addition to his field goal accuracy, Cundiff leads the league in touchbacks on his kickoffs, placing a high percentage of them deep enough into the end zone for their opponents to be forced to take a knee rather than risk bringing it out. Congratulations to the Baltimore Ravens for their hard fought victory and especially to Billy Cundiff, whose play has resulted in earning the Sprint 'Game Ball of the Week.'
